Our pizzas are distributed in grocery stores throughout Missouri, and in a small number of grocers in Kansas, in the Kansas City metro area. Affected products listed in the table below. Images of the labels on the products are at the end of this document.

A routine inspection by our government regulatory agency partners brought to light the omission of a declaration on our labeling of the presence of wheat in our pizzas.
